2015-THE PRACTICAL GEMOLOGIST
Galatea Momento PearlMarch 12, 2015
GALATEA MOMENTO PEARL
The March towards merging tech and jewelry, function and form continues with Galatea’s patented Momento Pearl project.
An NFC chip embedded in a cultured pearl allows a message or a photo to be associated with the pearl. The photo or message can then be retrieved by tapping the pearl to “a sweet spot” on the back of an NFC enabled Android device. Sorry IOS users, the technology just isn’t there yet.
The pearls are available in a variety of settings, as well as being available in the patented “Galatea pearl”, the of Pearl grown with a gemstone inside.
Galatea is currently crowd sourcing their product on Kickstarter, offering products as backer rewards. For more information or to back the project visit Galatea on their Kickstarter page.
